The Manic Street Preachers have revealed full details of the remix album for their top new album Journal For Plague Lovers.

Speaking to the Quietus recently Nicky Wire said the remixes were "amazing", and gave some details. "Andrew Weatherall has done an amazing version of 'Peeled Apples' which he described as being like Charlie Watts playing with PiL," he enthused. "The Horrors have done a remix of 'Doors Closing Slowly' which is even doomier, British Sea Power have done 'Me And Stephen Hawking' which is a Joe Meek kind of thing. Four Tet have really used and abused Albini's sounds."
